Poetry Book Society review In Retail

An unexpected email today from the Poetry Book Society, sending me a PDF of the Summer bulletin, ‘with review of In Retail‘.

Really? I thought, we got a review?

It doesn’t say who wrote it, but thank you, whoever you are.

 Treading the line between wry absurdism and abject despair, In Retail is like reading anthropological field-notes from what should be an alien world but is, unfortunately, our own.

You can buy a copy on In Retail by Jeremy Dixon direct from our webshop, (post free in UK) or from your favourite independant bookshop.

Jeremy Dixon will be reading from In Retail
at Polari on Tour,
Waterstones, 11A Union Galleries,

FREE but ticketed: tickets

 

In Retail customer feedback

The launch of Jeremy Dixon‘s poetry collection, In Retail seems to have met management guidelines for a successful promotion, we hope to bring you photos and video shortly, but as these were outsourced from Arachne’s web, to local operatives, I can’t tell you exactly when.

Don’t forget, for the whole of February you can get special offers on our other LGBT books when you buy In retail, check out the second page of our Special offers

In the meantime, we’ve been getting some feedback over on our shop page, with universal 5 star reviews. (Of course, these are all from people who pre-ordered, so we can assume they were quite keen in the first place) but you can now not only buy a copy from us direct, but leave your thoughts afterwards, like these lovely folk.

Jeremy’s poems are like stars in a bleak landscape, beautiful, funny and life affirming
Jane A. Verified buyer February 11, 2019

A warm, witty, and observant little collection. Well done, Jeremy !

What a great little book, brilliantly observed with laugh out loud moments. Highly recommended
Celia D. Verified buyer January 16, 2019

I loved this book.  The poems give a humorous insight into the trials and tribulations of working in a retail shop. Love it!
Mrs C. Verified buyer December 23, 2018
